Review:

"[...] this gutsy, electrifying retelling of both epics... will please both the finicky Homeric scholars and children encountering the full stories for the first time." * TLS * Gareth Hinds brings The Odyssey to life in a masterful blend of art and storytelling. Vivid and exciting, this graphic novel is a worthy new interpretation of Homer's epic. * Rick Riordan, author of Percy Jackson and the Olympians series * Brings clarity and humour to these ancient myths... Surely the most entertaining way to explore ancient history. * Junior Education * Elegant, intelligent, funny, dramatic and totally absorbing; the perfect start to an early familiarity with Homer. * The Guardian * Likely to amuse and even absorb children for a good while... Has a kind of Where's Wally?-ish delight in visual minutiae. * The Times Educational Supplement *
